How to ask a startup to share their books with you. Being courted for Manager of S&O role, but don't want to be walking into a sinking ship.
Anyone in Anthem’s Strategy Consulting (ASC) group that can give insight on the company, role, culture etc.
Is the worst over? How is everyone’s firm doing? MBB, Deloitte, Strategy&, EYP, Accenture, etc
Anyone made the switch from Tax/Audit to analyst/Consulting? What's your favorite thing about the switch? I just received an offer from Accenture as an Analyst for something unrelated to my last position. Really fired up. 🎉
Hey, anyone have experience with boutique turnaround advisory consulting shops? (E.g., Getzler Heinrich, Novo Advisors, among others) How does pay look versus larger RX (Alice, A&M) Versus MBB?
I love this group. For those that receive company equity as part of their comp, what’s your strategy? Do you immediately sell it all and put the cash into index funds?
Where could I find a source for trusted salary and total compensation information? I need to find salary/total comp for a help desk person in Monterrey, Mexico and Hyperbad, India.
What’s culture and WLB like in Google Strategy and Ops? I see most are former MBB, and I’m curious if they continue to carry the expectation of long hours and availability after-hours.
Looking for some help with negotiating a low ball offer with another big 4 for a manager role in the same high COL city. The first offer was lower than my current salary...
Does making mgr (starting straight out of college in consulting) at big 4 help open up exit opps? If so, what kind?
Has MBB lowered their standards? Maybe it’s my time.
Analyst in a small boutique firm but hoping to move MBB. Any tips on how to position myself, set myself up with experience ahead of networking and applying?
Recommendations for a good cv review service - hey guys I am revising my cv to be more suited for a bizops=strategy role at a FAANG. Do you guys have any recommendations for services that are good at this ? Please DM me.
Expecting an offer for a director/head of Int’l expansion role at a series C startup in Logistics software in NYC. What can I expect in terms of comp? YOE: 4.5 including 3.5 at MBB (left as an EM) Current TC about $230K
Starting MBB soon and would appreciate any recommendations on preparing myself for success on my first day? I’ve got a number of weeks until I start and will take some time off, but I’d also like to stay sharp and come in feeling confident. Any suggestions are welcome.
I have a post-MBA offer with Accenture Strategy and I'm seeking advice on whether I should pursue this offer, or if I should continue to recruit for MBB (which may open more doors/opportunities). I previously worked 4 years at Deloitte Consulting. Where do people from Accenture Strategy (not Accenture Management Consulting) tend to go? Is it possible to have similar opportunities as MBB firms or do you have to work harder to get MBB-type opportunities?
Just started at a Family Law firm and am low on work (came from another state so didn't bring my clients with me). It has been a while since I started fresh. I make a decent base salary but I need those billable hours to make more. How long does it take to be busy again!? I've joined an expanding firm and the lead attorney is helping me by giving me tasks to do. Just not as busy as I'm used to (this will be my 3rd week). Just need a pep talk I think 😊
Would appreciate people thoughts on Alvarez and Marsal private equity performance improvement group. The works sounds interesting on the surface. So thinking of branching out of audit and exploring A&M! Other option is probably an industry role, maybe a director of technical accounting in a public company.
I’m taking the GMAT in September and would like to include my score on my applications to other firms. Based on what I’m getting in practice, it would significantly improve my resume. However, I heard many firms, particularly MBB, have hiring windows in August, so applying later would hurt my chances. Is this true, and if so, when should I apply? Is it possible to apply earlier and then fill in the recruiter on my GMAT score while I’m in the process?
Im in strategy at Accenture. Is there any chance they'll let me get staffed on a non-strategy project?
Hate to do this, but... large scale EO coming up “... working on an EO to establish a merit-based immigration system to further protect US workers”
Had an interview 2 weeks ago that went really well. Haven’t heard a yes or no just emails asking me to stay tuned. What does that mean? Am I on a waiting list?
First week WFH observation: 👩 no longer wash their hairs and no more make up 👨no longer shave
I have been offered a 25 percent hike at a big 4 but have another offer with 40 percent hike in a Boutiqe firm. I asked the HR of the big 4 if she could adjust since I have a 40 percent hike letter. She said she’ll check. She hasn’t gotten back to me yet. Should I contact her? Currently working at one of the Big 4.
What hotel branch should I become loyal to? New joiner to consulting and was going to commit to Marriott but heard it’s getting bad..
I work at Deloitte Federal. I love Deloitte just not serving federal clients. I’m on the bench with and I’m a recent campus hire with limited exp. What should I do?
General curiosity... On job applications, how many of you fill in the voluntary form regarding race, sex, and gender?
Is a HRPB higher than an HR manager ?
For those of you who attended an MBA program, what did you do when you were not in the classroom? Besides traveling, partying, studying/homework, interviewing, etc. Were you often attending events to network, getting lunch with faculty, enjoying a hobby, something else? Thanks!
Hello KPMG folks, I need a referral in research and benchmarking (analyst) domain in Mumbai. Is there anyone who can help me to get this job?
Not Covid related, but: Cities you moved to and felt hard or easy in making new friends?
Been talking to a startup. Has pretty decent seed funding from a much larger real estate "parent" company and is seeking series A. Current offer is falls short, any advice for negotiating?
Who’s leaving PwC? Raise yoooo haaaandddd 🤚
MBB 🐠 I’ve heard that your firms generally only keep the top 20% of newer resources after 2yrs. How true is this? How likely is it for someone to get counseled out at the 2yr mark?
Its MBB work really that different from the rest of the consultancies? Outside of the branding and the pay that is?
Would you say summaries are as effective for self help books like "the subtle art of giving a fk" and other similar books? I feel the books themselves ramble on too much on a side story only to tell a point that could be summed up in a couple sentences. Or am I just not getting good book recommendations for growth/development on mental well being and productivity
Talent Acquisition teams: Are you all swamped and behind in your ATS processing right now? Asking as several colleagues and friends are actively submitting REFERRED applications for well-matched roles--but not hearing anything from HR. Is the need for talent real or is it overblown in the media? Or are a lot of TA people simply drowning at work or out on vacation right now? Tx for sharing if you are able! I'd like to give people some hope!
